    Introducing Alaina Reese and Grayden Walker

    Here are our new babies

    Our birth was pretty straight forward.

    I went to the hospital at 4:20pm and was in my room at 4:30pm. The OB was there the same time as us. He came in to check me and broke my water at 4:40pm (no messing around there) I did laps around the hospital for a while and labored on my own, then at 6:30 7:00pm I got an epidural, Grayden's heart rate kept dropping with contractions, not super low but low enough for them to call in my doc to see what he thought. Doc was there at 10pm and checked me and I was dilated to 4-5cm and super itchy from the epidural so they gave me some benadryl and started pitocin. So I was in and
    out of sleepy when the nurse checked me again at 12am. I was dilated to 6 then so it was slowly moving along. Then she came in at about 1:15am I was feeling vaginal pressure so she checked me again and I was dilated to 9-10. It went pretty quick from there. She called and got the OR set up for delivery, I went to the OR at 2am and started pushing at 2:10, ALaina was born at 2:25am I pushed another 13minutes to get Grayden down in the canal and out. He was born at 2:38am. Everyone was good. THey both had cords wrapped around there necks so they were a little sluggish to get going but both were breathing on there own and doing OK. They did call the NICU doc for Grayden but he never ended up going there. We were all back in our room by 3:30am and feeding the babies! We are so blessed that everyone is happy and healthy and that no one had to spend any time in the NICU. The babies and I all got to come home Thursday morning 2 days after delivery.

    Alaina was 5lb12oz and 18.5inches long and Grayden was 5lb13oz and 18.5inches long.

    They are doing great. Both are nursing and supplmenting with almost 2oz of formula every 3 hours.
